I can help you adapt your accent or dialect for an acting role or for business/professional purposes. “Accent reduction” is sort of a misnomer because what we’re really doing is learning a different accent; we all have accents. I can help you code-switch between your habitual dialect and one that you feel is more suitable for your situation.

About Erin

I am an actor, speech & dialect coach, and acting teacher. I had steady freelance teaching and coaching jobs for 3 years in NYC, as well as steady acting work in NYC and Chicago theatre for 5 years total. I moved to LA from Cambridge, MA, where I earned my Master's in Acting from the American Re

She is great, just great. 1st course yet she immediately helped me understand what were the real issues and how to tackle them. Now I feel confident to pass in front of an audience, because I know I will be heard and I will be understood!
Tyler
I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!
Laura
I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!

I learned English as my second language when I was invited to study Music Performance at Dalhousie University on a full scholarship. As an ESL student I believe that I understand the intricacies of this language much better than a native speaker, since I had to learn it from scratch at University level. Through both of my degrees I have been writing academic papers and one of my essays was published by a Harvard professor. I am an avid lover of literature and a real grammar-nazi with good intensions of course!

Anna is fantastic. If you are deciding on a teacher your search is over! She is great!
Parker
It would be a truism to say that Anna is a great instructor, and she is. It is such a great experience to learn Russian with a native speaker, especially one who has seen so much. Her ability to explain the intricacies of the language in both English and Russian is invaluable. Her understanding of Russian grammar, combined with her ability to explain it in English creates a clear learning experience. I highly recommend her.

I have taken Spanish classes ever since kindergarten. I passed the AP Spanish test in high school and then went on to obtain my Bachelor's degree in Spanish at Calvin College.

While pursuing my Bachelor's degree, I studied abroad in northern Spain for 6 months. I lived with a host family who only spoke Spanish and, therefore, obtained real-life experience interacting with Spanish-speaking communities.

"Hello, I have worked at Kodaikanal International School in India for three years. KIS received the #1 school award by Educational World in India in 2013. It’s a co-ed residential school with beautiful surroundings on a high mountain. It was my honor to have my teaching history there with my terrific students and professional colleagues. I would like to share my recommendation from my principal here. You can find the original copy in my photos:

9 May 2012
To Whom It May Concern
It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Youngju Lee. Youngju has taught Korean language and Arts at Kodaikanal International School since July 2009.

Kodaikanal International School is an international school located in Tamil nadu India in South India since 1901, making it one of the oldest schools in the country. It was originally a school for American missionaries. It has been an international school since 1974 and currently has a student body representing some 30 nationalities drawn primarily from within India but also in lesser numbers from various geographical regions that include countries located in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas. KIS has also been a preferred choice of families of Indian origin settled abroad when they have wanted their children to have exposure to India and Indian culture because of its multicultural approach and the diversity of the staff and student body.

Youngju is an excellent teacher and I have enormous respect for her work in the classroom. She works well with students, is positive influence with the students and is able to encourage them to achieve their best. She uses a variety of approaches in her classes from group and individual work. She establishes a good relationship with her students, explains things carefully, prepares well and has a very effective yet relaxed delivery style. She has a positive rapport with her students and they demonstrate mutual respect and they enjoy learning. Students feel well supported in her class and enjoy her classes. She also cares for her students outside of the classroom and follows up on any concerns she or others may have of an individual.

Youngju has played an active role in extracurricular activities through her participation as chaperone on field trips, organizing events and student activities.

Youngju and her husband Stephen have settled well into the broader community in Kodaikanal and enjoy their life here with their family very much. In conclusion, I believe Youngju would make a good contribution to any school community. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information about Youngju Lee.
I recommend her wholeheartedly as an exceptional teacher and wish her well.
If more job specific information is required please contact me on principal@kis.in or on my mobile #----------.

"Pantelis is an enthusiastic, encouraging, and experienced teacher. I like that he is helping me to establish a strong foundation in grammar - something that earlier teachers failed to do. I like that he has flexible hours and is easily accessible if I have questions during the week.

He quickly gauged my skill level and adjusted the pace of his lessons accordingly.

He has provided a number of excellent online resources, some of which he is helping to develop. I am very pleased with the resources and the lessons."

How Much Does it Really Cost to Learn Spanish?

Learning a language like Spanish has tons of benefits, for adults and children alike. But how much should you expect to invest, if it's something you're serious about learning? There are few outlets for free Spanish lessons for beginners, but they're not always the best option. Books may provide vocabulary and grammar lessons, but you're missing out on hearing the language spoken. YouTube videos can be fun to watch, but you're missing out on that essential component of conversation with anot …
